That's right Jen, healthy food for healthy milk!

I think it's a total kick to make stuff and sell it. I used to do so well at Ren fairs and later children's fairs.

So our King City house is in escrow and now we're having the realtor look to price our Santa Maria house and put it up for sale! This will be an end of an era and we will have (only) 4 houses left.

Good luck on the job front!

Carol that shark is awesome, making things and selling them... I have to get better at that ;)

I've been working on trying to keep my food in line. I'm back down to where my weight had been a few years ago which is great. Now that I have the added knowledge of how high my diabetes risk is, it's a big motivator to keep that weight off. Of course I legitimately have to eat a lot right now to support breastfeeding too! Just can't all be sugar :)

Good luck on the job!

We're looking at an Iceland cruise but my sister says it's too expensive for her ($4k each person)...which she's right, it is expensive. I suggested we make and sell (something) to earn the money and she's game. We were talking about doing garden sculptures with solar lights. Her husband just did a couple of mushrooms that are about three feet tall, super cute, with hobbit by doors and windows. Hopefully, he'll take some pictures and load them to his web page. Here's a shark that my niece did for the high school aquarium, it hangs from the ceiling and is ... between 6 and 8 ft long. I ordered some fiber optic cable and am thinking about doing a barrel cactus that has light-up spines... gallery.hotwirefoamfactory.com/galle

I have the supplies to do a mosaic love seat out of foam, foam coat and then glass, tiles and shells. ...I won't want to sell that when I'm finished, so not that. I do have a waterfall almost finished that is designed to be attached to a small pond... Anyway, I think it will be fun to make stuff. I just need to finish working so that I can retire and PLAY!

Two more weeks and then I'm off on vacation for a month! I can't wait to go to Andarra, Portugal and Morroco, all places I've never been! We're also going to Spain because my sister has never been and Barcelona which is one of my favorite cities in the whole world!

Good Morning!!! I hope everyone had a great weekend! I sold some candles on Saturday, so that was fun! I love selling our lovely candles to people!

I was so excited to swim yesterday in my new suit. But when I got to the pool I found out the pool was closed for maintenance. Some kind of "accident" and then they had to pour in a whole lot of chlorine so it wasn't safe. Well, I'd rather swim in a safe pool, so that was OK. Instead I did 50 minutes on the treadmill. It was great. I can really feel that I'm improving my fitness. Also, all of my clothes are getting to be really big. My weight is stuck, but my clothes are bigger, so that goes to show weight isn't the only measure!!

The heat is turned way up in the office (we have old radiators and also it seems like we have forced air heat as well). It must be over 80 degrees in here. I like to be warm, so I'm trying not to complain, but I'm also sitting here sweating at my desk!!

I have an interview today for a sweet job. Who knows......but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to at least try for it!

Have a FUN and ACTIVE day!!!
